it is amazing that he is taking the oath of office on the bible of lincoln and martin luther king, and martin luther king had this to say, and if i can quote him -- it is a simple matter of justice with the task of raising the negro from backwardness should also be rescuing the forgotten a white sport. a bill of rights for the disadvantaged, marked the rise of a new era in which the full resources of society would be used to attack the tenacious poverty which so paradoxical exists here. >> that is tim from gainesville, florida. he mentioned the lincoln and bible and the king bible. the lincoln bible itself, according to the library of can -- of congress, is bound in burgundy velvet with a gold washed white metal rim around the three outside edges of the covers. all edges are heavily guilt. in the center of -- of the top cover, there is a shield of cold wash with the words "holy bible" etched into it. the king bible was dr. king's trebling bible. an avid reader, dr. king traveled with a selection of books that included this bible the president will be using. it was used for inspiration and pre
was sworn in, in 1861. he will use martin luther king jr. personal bible. it has extra significance in this inauguration because it's happening on the federal holiday that honors the civil rights leader. both bibles will be stacked on top of each other. in the first inauguration, the president used the lincoln bible as well. martin luther king jr.'s bible, it was his traveling bible when he would go places to make speeches. he would take that bible with him. he'd be able to study from that bible and pull verses if he wanted to insert things into speeches. >> how is that having your hand on the bible used by lincoln and martin luther king jr. >> absolutely. >> the first family observed martin luther king jr. day on saturday with a day of service, of course. >> with thousands of others. >>> if you're planning to go to the national mall, plan on leaving plenty of extra time. >> you're going to need it. security will be tight for everybody downtown for the event. news 4's megan mcgrath live on the mall this morning with more. megan, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning. they're

, but in the future. interesting that this inauguration falls on martin luther king's birthday. and 50 years ago, in 1963, that king gave his speech on the steps of the lincoln memorial. i am sure there is going to be some connection to that in the process. this is a fulfillment of what king had looked for. but what is left, what would expect to be done, i am sure that is part of the president's thinking. it is a little strange, also, for those who work for the federal government in washington did we always get -- washington. we always get king's birthday off. the question is, why didn't we have the inauguration on sunday? we've never had a formal outdoor ceremony on sunday. the sense is that the president should be sworn in privately on the white house on sunday. it is a wonderful coincidence that obama's is being held on martin luther king's birthday. >> we have had many speakers come this week and talk about the current polarization of congress. what you think about the polarization of congress? how can we bridge the gap going forward? >> is definitely polarized. the two political parties hav
assessment -- martin luther king, jr. [applause] so the president will clearly be in the foreground, but dr. king looms large as the backdrop. now, word comes from the white house that they will use his bible for this historic and iconic celebration, so we will talk tonight about how we honor the legacy of dr. king by focusing more attention on the issue that he gave his life for -- the poor. king once said we have to civilize ourselves by the immediate abolition of poverty. obviously, we are not quite there yet, but we of tonight's conversation will aid us and of that as in trying to make sure that we look out for the least among us. i am pleased tonight to be joined by an all-star panel. i want to introduce them one by one and jumped right into the conversation. i want to start by thanking c- span for carrying this program live around the world tonight.

of the first family to see this service day both to honor the memory of martin luther king junior and as a tradition we hope will live on past the inaugural and move forward regardless of who is in office. then the kids inaugural children's concert a tradition started in 2009 by dr. biden and first lady, michele obama and an extension of their work they have done through their initiative to help honor and support military families. this will take place at the convention center which is also where both balls will take place. we've put on an initial list of talent that will be appearing at both the balls on monday night and the kids concert or one another and as you can imagine this is a logistical list to get a all pieced together as a puzzle and we hope by friday to announce what acts will be appearing in which places. again, this is a great place to honor the sacrifice not just of the men and women that serve every day but of the families that support them. on tuesday, jumping ahead of what we just discussed or past what we just discussed, there will also be the prayer service ta
for most of the delegates. so luther martin from maryland, who became ultimately an anti-federalist propose the supremacy clause more or less as it stands now except that he kept the state constitution and he did this is a trick. he was hoping to get everyone to write into the constitution that federal law trumps a thought, but not state constitution so he could later argue the state constitution's tom federal law. they claim that offended within their federal law trumps the constitutions. but that raises the question of original intent of whose content is original. isn't mattison who wanted a much stronger federal veto? is a luther martin whose intent was to deceive the other delegates? is that the other delicate wanted not a sin to shut up and get back to where? exactly whose intent do you put in because nobody came to the constitutional convention thinking i want a supremacy clause. that is nobody's intent. that emerged out of the process. if you look at what people intended, everyone intended something else, but this is what came out. >> host: of course there were similar problems with
who want to privatize our schools are setting up academies. dr. martin luther king academy of leadership and enterprise. or they will name them for langston hughes, frederick douglass. i do not think a lot people should let them name the schools. [laughter] [applause] they should name it for people they do not like. [laughter] here are a few points. i will be unfashionable tonight. everyone in washington seems to think the way to solve the problems in our schools is to not give them another cent, another penny, to improve and make the schools look like places that are inviting and respect the value of children. aesthetics count. do not do that, but beat up on their teachers. that is the trend today. [applause] attack the unions. i heard about the teachers union from teachers in l.a. last fall. i flew to chicago to stand with them the day they went on strike. they were right to go on strike. [applause] i will tell you something. i am in schools all the time. when i was a young teacher, i remember this. schools are overwhelmingly -- the teachers are women. you go to a convent

torian and editor of martin luther king jr.'s papers, part of booktv this weekend, monday, featuring authors and books on the inauguration, president obama, and martin luther king, jr.. >> why did you write a book about your experience? >> it was an important period of history, of i felt that the fdic's speer techive should be brought to bear. there was other accounts of the crisis that i thought were not completely accurate, especially in terms of what we did and what i did so i thought it was important for the historical record to present our perspective, and, also, i think, currently for people to understand there were different policy options and disagreements and if we want to prevent this crisis from happening, there had to be interests, educate themselves better, make it an issue, and i try hard to make the book accessible and take seriously. >> the former head of the finance cooperate on the government's role in the country's worst financial crisis since the dpreption. her book is "bull by the horns," sunday eight -- sunday night at eight on c-span's q&a. >> several corporate
true. i mean, we all are created equally. but my question for mr. obama is he swore, he used martin luther king's traveling bible, and he swore on lincoln's bible also. correct? host: that is what i heard. caller: my question to you is, did he read either of those two blocks and comprehend what he wrote? when he said that everybody should have a chance, why is he abortion? give that child a chance. am i correct? host: what does that mean it to you? caller: let's get rid of abortion. the gaze he spoke about, he did not comprehend what he read in the bible. maybe he needs help in that area. and every man is equal. let's give these children who are aborted, let's no longer let it go on. let's give them a chance. correct? host: ok, patricia. we will go to mary and next. caller: i thought he did a great speech yesterday. i think what a lot of people are missing the point on was he was not just talking about his next four years. he was talking about a long-term vision, such as we are going to have to address climate change. he was also talking about things that are in our way now that if
so close to martin luther king day and king's family wanted the celebration to be a day of service not a day off. they say the president hopes it becomes a tradition. >> america was about, this is what we celebrate. in inauguration we're going to be -- it's a symbol of how our democracy works and how we peacefully transfer power, but it should also be an affirmation that we're all in this together and we've got to look out for each other and work hard on behalf of each other. >> reporter: now, tomorrow, about 800,000 people are expected on the mall for the president's second inaugural address and a much smaller crowd than the one four years ago and the weather is expected to be warmer than the 28 degrees at the first inaugural, beat the 7 degrees it was for ronald reagan's second. >> that's right. let's talk about where the president is, as he starts his second four years in office even before the gun debate is hammering his approval. 51% approval rating which is really where george w. bush was, it's 19 points less than bill clinton was, but far below where he was. >> alisyn: yeah
